Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits

BY GREER TOWNSHEND
@ VOL 18 ON AUG 24, 2016

"What I love about the medium is its innate honesty. A drawing lets slip its own history."

 In "Fragility, Flowers and Contemporary Portraits" from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 18Greer Townshend shares her passion for and practice of drawing.  Her work is frequently underpinned by the concept of fragility, whether related to the process of memory, language or the self. Greer's practice combines portraiture and elements of nature, inferring an inherent connection between the two, and denoting life cycles. Greer will be talking about her take on ‘creating’ contemporary portraiture including her current fascination with all things 'flowering'.
